Danish Turkey Dumpling Soup
Total TimePrep: 35 min. Cook: 3 hours
Makes6 servings (about 2 quarts)
Doubled this recipe and took to Monday night football event. Most loved it and came back for more. Substituted some butternut squash and mushrooms for the turnip and cooked in a large cast iron dutch oven. We will save this for use on another occasion
This was my Grandmother's recipe too, except for the Baking Powder addition, and allowing the dumplings to cook for 20 minutes. What a huge difference it made! I loved it as it was, but with cooking the dumplings longer, made them enormous and cooked (I tend to like them al dente!) My husband LOVES them now, even asked for seconds. DELICIOUS! I suppose it helps being part Danish to understand that these are a little different than the American versions! They bring back MANY happy memories of mom and grandma making them over the years.
I don't know what the other reviewer did wrong but I have been making this soup for 20 years and the dumplings are the best part of the soup. I give it 5 stars.
The soup is good , the dumplings are awfull . just make a drop dumplin out of flour butter milk and 1 egg, beat well and drop on top of soup, let cook 5 min in covered pot . Enjoy!
